Ok, so you guys are whining about this...  I wrote some elisp to fudge
it into my email...  I still use /bin/mail.  No jeers from the cheap
seats...  Anyway, this is a test message, let me know if it `looks'
right.  [ fingers crossed ]

In case anybody else does this:

(defun gen-reference ()
    (goto-char (point-min))
    (if (looking-at "To: ")
	(let ((case-fold-search t))
	  (if (re-search-forward "^	message-id: " (point-max) t)
	      (let ((word (buffer-substring-no-properties
			   (progn (end-of-line) (point)))))
		(goto-char (point-min))
		(if (re-search-forward "^$")
		      (insert "References: ")
		      (insert word)
		      (insert "\n")))))))))

Glad I don't use vi, as I might have a hard time doing this in vi.
